This is how I made my peppermint soap. It will be great as Christmas gifts! Craft Lightning + Holiday Season = twice the fun! These lightning quick peppermint soaps are a fun DIY holiday gift idea for friends, neighbors and teachers and can be whipped up in about ten minutes!
What You’ll Need:
- Shea Butter Soap Base
- Peppermint Essential Oil
- Red Soap Colorant
- Soap Mold
- Microwave Safe Measuring Cup w/ Spout
The large block of shea butter soap base is smooth and silky, and it cuts easily with a kitchen knife. Slice the soap base into cubes, place them inside the measuring cup, and melt in the microwave in 30 second increments. Stir well after each microwave session to ensure that the soap is completely melted. Add a few drops of peppermint oil (around 6-10 drops depending on the intensity of the fragrance) and mix well. [Note: To make three peppermint soap bars, I used just over 1/2 lb of soap base, and it took a total of 60 seconds in the microwave to melt. The soap cools and sets up rather quickly, so work accordingly!]
Pour the melted soap into the mold and top with a few drops of red soap colorant. Use a toothpick to swirl the white and red colors together, and allow to cool completely before removing the soap from the mold.
Wrap a band of paper or ribbon around the stack of soap, and it’s ready for gifting!
